Re: More UFOs

If the 14 alleged ships that were investigating the Omaha are really aliens it is a little puzzling why they tipped their hand and showed that they are here, unless of course we had already detected them and they knew about it. If it was a foreign military, I doubt they would tip their hand like tha...

Re: Why do monks reside in temples

As noted above, Anathapindika canonically founded Jetavana during Sakyamuni's lifetime. Visakha also founded Migaramatupasada while he was alive. And the Vinaya speaks clearly of and to monastic living. Nor is it true that the early Buddhist communities lived an eremitic lifestyle out in nature: th...

I met someone who was interested in developing a meditation practice, and who also had interest in taking psychedelics. I wanted to warn her not to take drugs because I believe it could not only be harmful to her physical health, but also impede her meditation practice. Does anyone know how drugs h...

I've looked through it but it isn't exactly what I'm looking for though. hence why I posted the link to the forum.
